‘Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News.’

‘I do not know how to speak, for I am only a child’, says Jeremiah. We can probably all identify with Jeremiah’s reluctance to be sent as a prophet to the nations. Today’s readings remind us that the brave ones are not necessarily the best and the brightest, but the ones who are prepared to answer God’s call.

In the gospel, Jesus tells the apostles that the harvest is plentiful but the labourers are few—he sends seventy out to do good works and share peace. We live in a world that more than ever needs the Kingdom of God to come.

Who in my community longs to hear the Good News? How am I called to speak boldly and minister to those in need?
